.SH DESCRIPTION

This module allows you to launch a URL or a file on the Mac using the system's default application for that URL or file type. It provides similar functionality to the "/usr/bin/open" command-line tool, but works without shelling out to an external program. The package also allows you to query the system for a default app for a particular URL type, i.e. http://, and also to set the default app for a particular URL. Finally, the module provides a convenience function to get the current app path.
.SH EXAMPLES

launcher::launchurl http://www.apple.com

launcher::launch file ~/Desktop/test.txt

launcher::getapppath
launcher::getdefaultapp http
launcher::setdefaultapp x-man-page [launcher::getapppath]
